on poetry

“For as long as I was trying not to write poems — and I spent years trying not to write them, and throwing my energy into dumb things — my life was having none of it. I was stuck. I was getting spiritual pushback. Everything I planned was being dashed to pieces, because I had work to do that I wasn’t doing. But when I started to write, things settled for me.”
Lorna Goodison
(b. August 1, 1947)
